WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I feel as though the quality of my product was okay. I wish that the final product was the deepest black possible; however, I will be coming back to work with Alphagraphics primarily because of Brian Murdoch! His customer service was absolutely amazing and he went above and beyond for me unlike many other companies I've worked with. He treated my small scale business as though it is global. I cannot emphasize enough how service like his is one of the many reasons that businesses succeed. I will more than recommend the company solely based upon the experience I have. I was promised deadlines that were met and given recommendations for future products. Thank you sooooo much Brian for treating me like family!

Micah B. Pure Storage
Everything was handled very quickly and professionally for me. Very happy with the service.

Brian Murdoch has been great and he deserves a raise. The rep before him, Fergus Calderwood, became quite rude for some reason over time. I was ready to look for another graphic designer until I heard he was replaced. Make sure you keep people like Brian.

Brian and his team at AlphaGraphics do excellent work. Brian has a deep knowledge of the printing industry and all the print and large format products at his disposal, and is very thorough with his clients to develop an understanding of the project at hand and provide the best solution. He and his team are fantastic at meeting deadlines and communicating throughout the course of a project.

ABOUT THE OWNER
AlphaGraphics Chicago North had been serving the printing and communication needs of Chicago businesses for 24 years before Rob purchased the company in September of 2011. "We work with small and mid-sized businesses to provide marketing, mailing, printing and design services, often for companies that do not have those capabilities internally," states Rob.
Rob has worked in a number of different industries, initially in marketing, and moving to mortgage, banking, title insurance, financial services and now back to marketing and printing. All along, Rob's most treasured asset has been his network and the relationships he has forged and maintained in Chicago.
Regardless of industry, company, or position, Rob has always built businesses and/or departments thorugh his own efforts. His network was originally created within the real estate industry while working in the mortgage banking industry. As his network continued to expand, he moved into commercial and private banking.
In 2003, along with his attorney partners, he launched a new company, Synergy Title Services LLC. In just over four years, he built and sold the business to a national competitor. After the sale, Rob migrated back into banking/financial services, first with JP Morgan, and then with Morgan Stanley, while acquiring several licences including: Series 7, 65, 63 and State of Illinois Insurance.
Rob lives in the Lakeview neighboorhood of Chicago. He is married with two children. He is an avid runner, having completed the Chicago Marathon twelve times and having qualified and ran the Boston Marathon in 2010. Rob also completed the Ironman Wisconsin Triathlon in 2011. Rob is also an avid skier, both on the water and on the slopes, and is a youth lacrosse and softball coach.
